Shrimp Scampi

Oh, Boogey, my Boogey, the dinner bell rings.

Eating good food is supposed to be the easiest thing.

Just open your mouth and give it a try.

I am so proud of you…..let me give you a high five!

So, you know how I mentioned I am challenging myself to get Hunter to try new things every day?  Well, although somewhat de-constructed, he ate almost every part of this delicious Shrimp Scampi!!! I’m not sure how he is my child and doesn’t like tomatoes.  It is the holy fruit of summer and he “doesn’t like ta-may-toes”, so this very sweet mommy picked out all the tomatoes from his plate and aside from the “green stuff” (scallions) that I also had to pick out, he ate the rest!  I realize that shrimp and noodles isn’t what you would call a big player in the extreme games of food eating, but he ate it and that made me extremely proud!  This was a delicious dinner, but also quick and easy.

Shrimp Scampi

This tasty dish can be served over pasta with crusty bread or over rice.

  2. Add shrimp to pan and then white wine and stir to coat with wine and butter mixture. Increase the heat a bit and let the wine cook around the shrimp for 2-3 minutes.

  4. Cook pasta in chicken broth according to directions on box. Strain noodles. Spoon and serve shrimp over noodles and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Notes

I used shrimp with the tails removed to be a little more kid-friendly, but this dish can be served either way depending on your preference.
